One Year Later: A Conversation With Dominique Johnson ’11 of the Center for Policing Equity

May 25 2021

From the article: "In the aftermath of George Floyd's murder on May 25, 2020, the Center for Policing Equity (CPE) went into high gear to respond to the public's growing demand to end police violence against Black people and other people of color.

Johnson recently reached out to chat about the progress made in the past year, how her Bowdoin team contributed, and what the Center for Policing Equity is focused on in the coming year. [The conversation has been lightly edited.]

(The Center for Policing Equity is a research and advocacy organization with offices in Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, New York City, Denver, and DC. Its staff of analysts, scholars, former police officers, and community and policy advocates use data to identify and measure racial bias in policing, shed light on police behavior, and work with police and communities on envisioning ways to improve public safety. Today CPE works with police departments, as well as civic and community groups, schools, and corporations—any group that wants to take action to "understand racial impacts and reimagine public safety," Johnson said.)"
